Police in Hertfordshire are investigating reports that a man spied on an 11-year-old boy while he was in a changing room cubicle in Hitchin.

Officers have released an e-fit image of someone they would like to speak to in connection with their inquiries.

The incident reportedly happened at about 6.05pm on Tuesday June 24 at a swimming pool in Fishponds Road.

The victim was getting changed when a man entered an adjacent cubicle and looked over to watch him.

He is described as being white, between 5ft 7ins and 5ft 9ins tall, and of slim build.

“This incident has understandably left the victim shaken as it is a total invasion of his privacy. We would like to identify this man as quickly as possible."
